Democrats Shameful History of Racism & Gun Rights !
George Zimmerman is not the racist that President Obama helped to paint. When he heard that an unarmed 17 year black boy, Trayvon Martin, was shot and killed by a Neighborhood Watch volunteer he assumed it was by a white man. Before even knowing the full story Obama recklessly ramped up the race-hate scenario with the inflammatory remark, ''You know, if I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon" then Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and the Black Panther Party did the rest.
It was weeks later when the Orlando Sentinel revealed the police account of the incident corroborated by witnesses: ''With a single punch, Trayvon decked the Neighborhood Watch volunteer, which broke his nose, then he climbed on top of George Zimmerman and slammed his head into the sidewalk leaving him bloody and battered, where in Zimmerman managed to shoot the 17 year old dead in self-defence.'' Mr Zimmerman is an Hispanic and lawfully has a gun under Florida's ''stand-your-ground'' legislation. Congratulations, Obama, for inflaming white-black tensions when the the worse violence is in fact mostly black-on-black.
I wrote in a recent posting that the Democrats and their left liberal bleeding hearts are demanding tighter gun control with the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in their minds. No mention of tighting up controls of the many ''fruitcakes'' walking around forgetting to take their medications. The Democrat's present stance with guns and their paternal feelings for Negros runs counter to the real historical record which has faded over the years. This is due to the ''excellent'' public education system that ensures that no American under the age of 60 has the slightest notion of their country's history.
Gun control laws were originally promulgated by Democrats to keep guns out of the hands of blacks. This allowed the Democratic policy of slavery to proceed with fewer bumps and, after the Civil War, allowed the Democratic Kn Klux Klan to menace and murder black Americans with little resistance. (Contrary to what illiterates believe, the KKK was an outgrowth of the Democratic Party, with overlapping membership rolls. The Klan was to the Democrats what the deadshit American Civil Liberties Union is today: Not every Democrat is an ACLUér, but every ACLUér is a Democrat. Same with the Klan.)
Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Roger Taney's infamous opinion in 1857 in Dred Scott v. Sandford argued that blacks could not be citizens because if they were citizens they would have to right to own guns: ''It would give them the full liberty to keep and carry arms wherever they went,'' he said. With logic like that, Republicans eventually had to fight a Civil War to get the Democrats to give up slavery. Alas, they were Democrats, so they cheated. Right after the war, Democratic legislatures enacted ''Black Codes'' denying black Americans the right of citizenship -- such as the rather crucial one of bearing arms -- while other Democrats (sometimes the same Democrats) founded the Ku Klux Klan. For more than a hundred years, Republicans have aggressively supported arming blacks, so they could defend themselves against Democrats.
The Anti-Klan Act of 1871, under the authority of Republican president Ulysses S. Grant, employed the U.S. military to destroy the Klan and pretty much completed the job. But the Klan had a few resurgences in the early and mid-20th century. Curiously, wherever the Klan became a political force, gun control laws would suddenly appear on the books. Here's an idea of how those gun control laws worked. Following the firebombing of his house in 1956, Dr. Martin Luther King, who was a Christian minister, applied for a gun permit, but the Alabama authorities found him ''unsuitable''. A decade later, he won a Nobel Peace Prize.
The National Rifle Association opposed these discretionary gun permit laws and proceeded to grant NRA Charters to blacks who sought to defend themselves from Klan violence. Take for example; when WW2 Marine veteran, Robert F. Williams returned home to Monroe, North Carolina, to find the Klan riding high -- beating, lynching and murdering blacks at will. But it was not until he got a Charter from the NRA in 1957 and founded the Black Armed Guard that the Klan got their comeuppance. His repeated thwarting of violent Klan attacks is described in his stirring book, ''Negros With Guns.'' In one crucial battle, the Klan sieged the home of a black physician and his wife, but William's Black Armed Guard stood sentry and repelled the larger, cowardly force. As the the Klan found out, it's not so much fun when the rabbit's got the gun. In his book Williams wrote, ''It has always been an accepted right of Americans, that where the law is unable, or unwilling, to enforce order, the citizens can, and must act in self-defense against lawless violence.''
The Way I See It....the National; Rifle Association's proud history of fighting the Klan has been airbrushed out of the record by those who were complicit with the KKK, Jim Crow and racial terror, to wit: the DEMOCRATS.
The Democrats and the media have motivated many citizens to treat the NRA as a pariah because of its stance to protect the Second Amendment from being trampled by impassioned political idiots, like Dianne Feinstein. Gun control is always a scheme of the powerful to deprive the powerless of the right to self-defense. The Russian Communists in 1926 took all guns from their citizens -- and since then over 60 million Russians perished at the hands of their government. Food-for-Thought.
